Zero tolerance of imaginary weapons.

I'm really sick of the words, "zero tolerance policy."  Every situation is different and we should be tolerant enough to give extra room for children who are playing and expressing themselves.

It's not like the kid actually had a bow & arrow.  Sheesh!    :shrug:

Apparently there's a zero-tolerance policy for kids acting the way kids have acted since before recorded history.

Zero tolerance of reality and common sense.

Its a darn good thing the kid didn't shoot his imaginary bow and arrow at an administrator!  He would really have been in trouble. :woohoo:

What they are doing is really aimed at the parents. This is an underhanded way to demand how parents raised their kids. Forcing submission of the people, however subtle, is the goal.

An atomic bomb is about as "subtle."
